        do you have another mobo to try?

        can you test the PSU doing the wire trick in the ATX connector - normally green to black but check in case the colours are not standard. Make sure you have some load on the PSU.

          not free, the computer turns on fine with a mini 200w PSU it is the M1-atx that seems to be playing up :/

              I'll try but I really don't know what's going on I have it set to the basic PSU mode with power all the time so something must be faulty I'm maybe best just rmaing it back to LinITX.

                yeah do a bit more testing and then see what linITX think. They are pretty good at getting things sorted.

                  Hello, long time reader, first post...

                  I have the EXACT problem that the starter of this thread has with my M1-ATX power supply. Along with him, i am also running on normal PSU mode with a m10000 motherboard. I was wondering what he found was the problem?

                      Having similar problem. I can power it up if i connect power jumper to the button in the case.....powers right up. If i connect the jumper to J6 on the M1 then it does nothing.
                      I wait longer than 5 seconds and it still sits there.

                      I have the new firmware but haven't done it yet. Not exactly sure how.

                        just to let everyone know, my problem was that my bench power supply was not providing enough current. I switched to a variable power supply with higher/variable current and things worked fine.

                          Did anyone for my post about the M1-ATX....no....

                          Ok, the M1-ATX has a logic level output to switch on the mobo, some mobo's like mine need an actual contact closure to operate.
                          I had to costruct a small circuit with a couple of transistors & a relay to get this to work.

                          The way to try it is; with the M1 connected normally, try to short the PC power on jumper (second connector loacted on the M1) if this powers up then you may have the same issue as me.
